Spier Chenin Blanc Signature Collection

Spier Chenin Blanc Signature Collection 2019

Stellenbosch, Coastal Region, South AfricaMy preference is for a slightly skinnier, fresher style of chenin blanc that is less weighty and oily, and this Spier Signature Collection hits all those marks. Spier was first planted to vines in 1692, with the first grapes pressed in 1712. The grapes are grown in the Western Cape's Breede and Coastal regions. They get brief skin contact before a straightforward stainless tank ferment and post-fermentation ageing on lees for three months. Look for bright peach and apple with a drizzle of lemon and creamy citrus. Crazy value here. Drink all summer with a variety of appetizers on the patio.Tasted: 30 May 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 13.99 BCLS Producer: SpierDistributors: Whitehall Premium Wines & Spirits
